With this bouquet of wildflowers in soft, pastel colours, Paul Thomas, the specialist in interior scenes, gives us here a work full of charm.

The painter enriches his still life with delicate work on the motifs.
The flowers are superimposed on the pastoral-inspired designs of the toile de jouy, created by renowned painters of the 18th century.
The iconic and timeless toile de jouy, used as a background, reflects across the world French good taste and still inspires the world of fashion and decoration today.

The harmony of colors is fresh and graceful.
